    We've gotta come up with a better name- Ned Head would seem like everyone had male pattern baldness. :lol3

    Appreciate the offer! Never know what will emerge, so I might just take you up on that!

    It seems wrong to me, too. Dakar belongs with Santa Claus, not air conditioners...

    I've gotta get on pre-race accommodation. The race leaves from Mar del Plata this year, a few hours South of BA, but the time is now to make a plan!

    We're going to have crossed wires, then, because I'm going to get one of your Buffs... really hope we meet again, this time in South America!

    Thanks, I need it. Every time I sit down, a flood of things that I need to get done comes washing through my brain. I make lists and they quickly spawn sub lists that spawn sub lists... hard to keep it all straight.

    On the training front, though, I'm headed to Idaho tomorrow with Hillslamer for a long weekend of riding training. Can't wait, will bring the camera and share pictures of the decidedly non-rally (singletrack) terrain we're headed for. I'm going to see the Klim guys up there as well, so it should be a productive weekend.

    Absolutely fantastic! Looking forward to seeing your progress and supporting your effort. Double barrel was a great ride for us spectators. Dakar will be even better. Good luck! Good riding! Have a blast!

    Hey, I know that guy - it was his clinic that gave me the confidence to ride my first hare scramble a few yeas back. :clap Thanks, Ned! And best of luck pursuing your dream - I will definitely be following and supporting.


    2008 Coal Creek Off-Road Clinic:

    And if you're wondering what Ned was saying at this very moment, I remember it clearly. It was: "Is it fucking snowing? Really? Seriously?" :rofl

    I propose we take care of Ned financially and then have try outs, for a financed water boy, to tag a long, to possibly assist in one hell of a ADV finish!!:clap

    Wheres our trust fund baby's at?:ear


    Lets get him taken care of first..so he can focus on the task at hand, maybe even something extra to get him off the roman noodle stuff and onto fresh vegetables.

    We could even do a fund raising competition for the water boy spot where every one pays to have the chance to win, cash in on the possible concessions and ticket sales...The ADV team...watch out DAKAR!!

    Those countdowns always surprise me when I see the # of days. I have a feeling this will make Ned shit when he sees it.:lol3
